The company, he said, remained on course to chalk more successes in the fuel retail business through competitive pricing, offering quality additivated products and value for fuel purchased by customers.

He said the Company would also reinvigorate its efforts to supply bitumen to satisfy growing national demand.

“GOIL intends to establish itself in every district and the name must be a household one and should be associated with quality products and excellent service delivery”, he assured shareholders.

The Managing Director of GOIL, Patrick A.K. Akorli, commended management and staff for the positive performance assuring the company was on the path of growth and will focus on major expansion projects to position it as a big player in the fuel retail business in West Africa.
